Forum: web Subject: Access a login required site

Hello, is it possible to access a site in the archive that requires a user name and password. I'm trying to view the friendsreunited site for 1995 but it required a password, which i have, but upon login, I'm going to the current friendsreunited site.

thanks,

jmy

Sorry, this is not possible. Password protected content cannot be accessed by the archiving process.

It's a *big* security risk, but you could assign an account especially for internet archive, and (if you're using php) do something along the lines of if (strpos($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'],'ia_archiver') !== false) {
// Set your get/post login stuff.
}

This example of course would only work if you were running php.
